Fiddling as the Earth Burns

    2. Petition by

      Ani L. Schwartz

      Arroyo Seco, NM

Impose a Carbon Tax on Corporations,  Fund Renewable Energy Development with the  Proceeds ...
"Regulating by carbon trading is like fiddling as Rome burns. Governments and the UN should impose a carbon tax on corporations, both for production - wherever their facilities are located - and for transport, which the Kyoto Protocol does not account for directly. Incentives for renewable energy are also essential. We face a stark choice: we can destroy the conditions for human life on the planet by clinging to 'free-market' fundamentalism, or we can secure our future by bringing commerce within the laws of ecological sustainability and social justice ."

Vandana Shiva, leading author and activist in India, member of the Policy Advisory Board of the Organic Consumers Association
